Ageing and Employment Policies: Norway 2013
Working Better with Age
This report provides an overview of the substantial ageing and employment policy initiatives
already implemented in Norway over the past decade and identifies areas where more
should be done, covering both supply-side and demand-side aspects.
To give better incentives to carry on working, the report recommends further reforms
in the second-pillar pension schemes, particularly for public sector employees. On
the side of employers, it is important to progress towards more age-neutral hiring
decisions and to review of age limits for mandatory retirement.
To improve the employability of older workers, the focus should be to promote job-related
training with a particular focus on mid-career workers and to encourage initiatives
based on a full-time culture and good working conditions for all.
